Summary: "Volume I: The old WIC, 1621-1674" of the Comprehensive Atlas of the Dutch West India Company, which is scheduled to appear in October/November 2011, will in this way deal with the legacy of manuscript maps, ground-plans and topographical depictions from the entire WIC charter area in the period up to 1674. In the first place much attention will naturally be devoted to the colonies of New Netherland (Nieuw Nederland, with New Amsterdam, the present New York, 1624-1664) and Brazil (1624-1654). As well as these the volume will present a complete survey in map and image of the early WIC settlements in the Antilles, on what was called the Wild Coast or Guyana including the later Surinam, and on the coasts of Africa, and of the various explorations and military operations carried out by Dutch fleets in the area of the Atlantic Ocean and along the Pacific coasts of South and Central America Summary: "Volume II: The new WIC, 1674-1791", to appear in October/November 2012, will contain the extant materials in map and image from the remaining WIC areas dating from the period after 1674. Apart from the Antilles and the forts on the Gold Coast and Slave Coast in West Africa, these relate in particular to the Dutch plantation colonies that came into being in the late 17th and the 18th centuries in South America, hence Surinam, Essequibo, Berbice and Demerara, from which among other things a large number of detailed plantation maps and ground-plans have been preserved
